In brief: Margaret Corvid aka Mistress Magpie is on to school me on how her career in sex work can — and should — inform how other people are self-employed balance life and career. She shared some brilliant life wisdom & confirmed the need to burn capitalism to the ground. Then my lovely editor from The Frisky, Robyn Pennacchia, is on to chat lady things and casual sexism from her latest righteous rants.

Quotes of the Show from Margaret Corvid: “The first thing that you have to do is really realize that you are valuable — that you are worth it.”
“As a woman, we’re all told what we should be doing: we should be dieting after the New Year, we should be going out meditating every day so we’re happier with life, but you are the person who has to decide what your work-life boundary is.”
